Blake Shelton is back, revealing that his celebrity game show, Barmageddon, will return to USA Network for Season 2. As with Season 1, Shelton will be joined by The Voice host Carson Daly and former WWE star Nikki Garcia to helm the fun-filled series.

The show, filmed at Shelton’s Nashville bar Ole Red, will return on November 11 with celebrity participants to include Kelly Clarkson, Jelly Roll, Boyz II Men, Carly Pearce, Lauren Alaina and more.

Each episode sees two celebrities play a set of five games in an effort to win a prize for “a viral Internet sensation each has chosen to support,” according to a press release. There will also be a chance for contestants to make a comeback during the show by spinning the “Wheel of Redemption.”

In addition to its regular episodes, Season 2 will also feature a special holiday episode on December 4 where Shelton will invite Ice-T to his winter wonderland that features a festive twist on games like Merry Axe-Mas, Doodle All the Way, Little Drummer Boy (and Girl), Reindeer Games and Christmas Carol-okie.

In a sneak peek trailer for the upcoming season, fans get a glimpse at new games like Fool’s Ball, Tic Tac Throwdown and Talk Derby to Me as Shelton declares that “the need for redemption will be bigger than ever” and “the games will be crazier.”

“Real-Life The Hangover”

When Barmageddon‘s first season premiered, Shelton told PEOPLE that he and Daly were aiming for “real-life The Hangover” with the game show.

“Back in the day, I would say the 28-year-old version of Blake Shelton on Barmageddon [would have been] way different than the 46-year-old version now,” he said. “Now I like to watch other people do stupid stuff — not necessarily be the one doing it.”

Shelton and Daly, who are good friends, came up with the idea for the show during the pandemic when the two were on set of The Voice.

“We’re both very dumb men, and we come up with lots of what we think are great ideas,” Daly joked. “We almost started a beef jerky company.”

The Voice host called the show “unadulterated fun.”

“S— talking was at the top of the list,” he said. “Our friends showed up for us and it was a blast. I can’t believe one of our idiotic ideas actually is happening.”

“When we did Barmageddon, Blake was like, ‘We have to have the right kind of celebrities on it who can check their ego at the door,’” he continued. “Blake and I don’t wake up and go, ‘Oh, we’re those dudes from television.’ We wake up and we’re just normal dudes, and we like to have fun,” he adds. “[This show] is adult spring break. There’s no pressure and people get to see the real side of you.”

Barmadgeddon premieres on Monday, Nov. 13 at 11 p.m. ET/PT via NBC.
